I was wondering if someone could explain to me why the West Orange ShopRite is not accepting the US Government program WIC? Why do local residents have to travel far from home to purchase food for their families? This is DISCRIMINATION at its worst.

There is a small sign at entrance of store. http://tinypic.com/r/24l0jdg/5 Why not a HUGE sign to make all aware of this #Discrimination?

What do you day about? I plan to take my money to another store in protest.

Just my 2 cents.

A store does not have to accept WIC. Maybe ShopRite doesn't want the bother.

PS: that sign looks about 12 x 18 at least and is both clearly visible and legible. Perhaps someone from West Orange will jump in here and clarify the situation but I see no problem. It's inconvenient but not discrimination as far as I can tell.

So the original post was Judged as spam because it reveals a secret that people don't want to talk about. Hmm... interesting but not surprising.

That sign is more like 6 x 12 if you ask me.

Obviously you're seeing more in this than I am so why not take it to the Topix West Orange forum and ask?

J.D. Green, not to belabor the subject but have you asked the manager of the West Orange ShopRite why the store does not participate in the WIC program?
